Advanced CAPA & Root Cause Analysis Conference


About Conference

CAPA is the most critical and challenging quality system requirement in terms of complex thinking and organizational processes. How do you verify effectiveness? How can you apply project management to CAPA? What are the right data and tools for identifying trends? How do you deal with significant but infrequent problems? Should you set deadlines for closing CAPAs, and what about CAPAs that never close? What are best practices for documenting and communicating CAPA results? Not a CAPA 101 course, this workshop brings together leading industry CAPA process owners to discuss approaches to the most difficult problems in CAPA and root cause analysis.
